In personal injury cases, medical malpractice refers to instances where a person has been injured or harmed due to the negligence of a healthcare provider. For example, if a surgeon operates on the wrong body part, or a doctor fails to diagnose a serious illness, resulting in further harm to the patient, this could be considered medical malpractice.
It's important to note that not all medical errors are considered malpractice. In order for a case to be considered medical malpractice, it must be proven that the healthcare provider acted negligently and that this negligence directly caused harm to the patient.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to malpractice, you should gather and save all relevant documentation related to the incident. Below is a brief list of some of the important evidence and materials every medical malpractice claim needs:
